As I mentioned in a comment on this post, I was suddenly not able anymore to turn on the Wi-Fi of my Nabi 2. But it was easy to solve :)

The situation when the problem occurred was this one:
- My Nabi 2 is a UK version
- The Product Version of my Nabi was 1.9.37 before rooting the device and installing the Gapps and it was still that version when the problem occurred.
- I was using TWRP 188.8.131.52 as my Nabi 2 is suffering the Touch Screen Calibration issue with any next version.
I have been reading many threads about that issue, mainly starting from this one. And I finally concluded that the only solution was to re-install the stock firmware, upgrade next to the latest Product Version and retry to root and install Gapps. It worked like a charm :p
The easiest to do that is to use the Nabi Lab v2. It’s so well done and clear that the details provided here after are actually useless.
- If your PC is not ready (has the drivers) anymore to connect on the Nabi, use first the menu 1.
- Use next the menu 3 to restore the stock firmware.
- After this, my device was still running the Product Version 1.9.37 and all the original applications from Fuhu were back.
- Most of the applications I installed from Google Play had disappeared but not all ?! I was expecting all of them to be swiped out…
- Reboot the device and go to the Settings > About tablet > Update to get the very latest Product Version.
- In my case it moved from 1.9.37 to 2.0. I read somewhere that this one includes a fix or improvement related to Wi-Fi.. Good :p
- Back to Nabi Lab, use the menu 4 to root the device
- I didn’t use the menu 1 to install TWRP, root the device and install Gapps because I wanted to keep the TWRP 184.108.40.206 proved to fit my Nabi regarding it’s Touch Screen Calibration issue.
- Finally, use the menu 3 to install Gapps.
- I did try to install TWRP 220.127.116.11 for Nabi 2 but I was still experiencing the Touch Screen Calibration Issue.
- I did try also next “TWRP 18.104.22.168 for Nabi versions prior 1.9.37 (UK, …)” available with Nabi Lab v2 and it appeared to works fine on my Nabi! Great :)
- What is still not great with the Nabi 2: there is no native support to move applications from internal to external SD. It’s well known that not all applications can be moved (Ex.: those with Widgets currently in use, …). But they could offer something to move the others like use of “simlinks” for each moved .apk..
